At our in-house lab in Scottsdale, our vets use diagnostic tests and tools to accurately diagnose your pet's medical conditions and tailor treatment plans to his or her needs.
Laboratory & Diagnostics
Diagnostic imaging involves using electromagnetic radiation and other technologies to produce highly detailed images of your pet's internal structures.
The advanced tools we use at Scottsdale Ranch Animal Hospital help us to accurately diagnose your pet's medical issues. We offer services including digital radiology and ultrasound.
With our skill and capabilities in domestic imaging, we are able to provide more immediate treatment options and efficiently share information with you.

Our Diagnostic Services
With our in-house laboratory, we are proud to offer advanced diagnostics to allow our veterinarians to provide an accurate diagnosis of your pet's medical issues.
- Radiography (Digital X-Rays)
A radiograph (digital x-ray) is used to examine your pet's internal systems. Using this equipment, we can discover information that may be invisible from the outside.
Radiography is a painless, safe and non-invasive procedure. It uses only very low doses of radiation. Because this radiation exposure level is very low when we perform radiography, even very young pets and pregnant females can undergo the procedure.
Radiographs can be used to evaluate organs and bones, and to diagnose conditions including chronic arthritis, bladder stones, spinal cord diseases, fractured bones and some tumors.
With ultrasound imaging, part of the body is exposed to high-frequency sound waves, to produce images of the body's inner structures.
Because ultrasound images are captured in real-time, we can see the movement and structure of your pet's internal organs, in addition to blood flowing through blood vessels.
